Ug.. it’s been a month or more since I posted… due to circumstances yada yada…
I hope to be back up to full speed ahead soon, but I need to dust off the cobwebs to share some things – some long overdue.
First of all – time is getting short (and I’m talking you bands and artists): CXCW ’14 runs March 9-15, 2014 – location to be determined by you. There is still time to submit you video – check out the details here: Couch by Couchwest 2014
On February 14, still relatively new Nashvillian, Darrin Bradbury released his full length – True Love. Previously, I’ve called Darrin the best pure songwriter I’ve heard in a long, long time. True Love solidifies that claim, and if I must say, makes me look damn prophetic. Give it a listen, download, and name a good price.
Next up, I have a big congratulations to send out to E2TG favorites Miss. Shevaughn and Yuma Wray who officially became Mr. and Mrs. Shevaughn-Wray. Kidding about the name, but they Erin and Chris did tie the knot and will be embarking on a humongous honeymoon tour that will take them coast to coast – which is what they like, and includes a return trip to Nashville later this month.
In fact, the Nashville date March 25 happens to correspond to the release date of the highly anticipated new album, Lean into the Wind which will be released on Seven Dead Arson Records. Here are a couple of tracks from that album.
In other news, the new Taco Land album is
due out soon between writing and posting – I saw that Home Sweet Home is out now!, and we have a preview of the title track for you:
Next: It’s been a little since we heard from Ear the Ground Featured Artists – Dogs of Oz, but they are back with a new single ahead of one of the band’s long anticipated full-length album. The single is out on Cassette and Digital Download from Unruly Factions. Get it HERE and take a listen below:
I got to hang out with and see E2TG friends, Year of October (look for a new album from them in the summer. They are sounding better than ever and I can’t wait for the album. On the bill that night were a rocking Nashville Blues/Rock band called The Static Trees who sounded great and did a pretty sweet Stones’ cover (“Shake Your Hips” from Exile on Main Street), and a folksy/americanaish Murfreesboro band called Island Wren who are awesome and just released an EP called Fountain which you can get from iTunes and other places.
